is why did an ambassador have little or no real security in a place like libya on september 11th. >> that's a great question. who was in charge of security at the time when we knew that there were a number of attacks, a number of threats leading up to this incident. we knew they had drones in the sky watching ago live video feed as this battle unfolded for 7 to 8 hours. ty woods, of course you remember he was killed tragically in this attack, a navy seal who was killed, said when the bodies arrived back in the united states, hillary clinton looked right into his eyes and still was blaming it on that video. listen. >> well it, came out on the 12th, i'm sorry, on the 14th. this was about the same time that i met hillary clinton when the bodies came in to andrews air force base. and i think i mentioned this to you before. hillary clinton came up to me and i gave her a handshake and a hug. and when i shook her hand she said to me: we are going to have the film maker arrested. >> do you i think this may be te single most shocking thing in the benghazi story. secretary of state doesn't get to

libya. efficient transport and specialization brought ostia's economy to a high level of complexity, and surely had a profound effect on people's lives and the character of their city. that effect can be easily seen today in a living city, a city like fez, morocco. archaeologists have come to fez because the same high degree of specialization suggested by the ruins of ostia can be seen here in the flesh. the population and density of the old city of fez has remained the same since the 10th century. archaeologist david webster. the old city of fez had about 120,000 people for its total population. this would have been an equivalent of a population density of tens of thousands of people per square mile. now, the only reason why that was possible, especially in a nonindustrial context, was that you had a very effective agricultural environment around fez within, say, 15 or 20 miles radius. but you also had very effective forms of nonhuman transport -- donkeys, camels, horses, mules -- that could bring in all of the kinds of supplies that the city needed. now, that's one reason why you

killed, we had a terrorist attack in libya that was contrary to the president's triumphant narrative. it flew in the face of his strongest argument for reelection, that he has been strong on terror. there was and this fellow, the sleazy and gratuitously fellow and his colleagues spun the events, they twisted the events that happened in benghazi to fit the narrative. they could not admit it was a successful terrorist attack that took down the ambassador and his three colleagues because that flew in the face of the president's triumphant narrative and his march to reelection. so they spun it. here in my opinion, is where we faltered. we should have concentrated on two things. why did we have such a light footprints in such a volatile country to begin with? where was the security? i almost got killed in benghazi. >> we watched it on the air. >> and i know these militia. they turn on their mother in a heart bet. these are people with no character, no morals, that today their motivation is islam. tomorrow it's money, weapons, whatever it is. we should have had a much stronger footprints t

that the cia believed in for a period of time including their station chief in libya that this is it in some fashion was a function of mobs inspired by that antiislamic video. so, i don't know why they -- i don't know why they waited. if they had have given this up months ago, it would not have been notable at all. so the only thing of note here is that for some reason, they held back on it. substantively, it offers us absolutely nothing new. >> general chemmet, general lovell it was for the africa amendment if it knew it was a terrorist attack from the start and senior defense officials were informed of that, shouldn't the white house have known that, too? >> well, i think there is still a little more explaining that needs to be done with regards to what was known, when it was known inside the white house and how that turned into a series of sunday talk shows that tried to explain this. >> white house spokesperson jay carney has insisted that the white house changed little when this came to the talking points. if you go through the timeline, isn't there evidence that the talking points ref
